My father passed away from complications from lung cancer 16 years and 2 days ago. Here he is…

My dad

One year, five months, and one day from now will be the point in my life where I have been without him as long as I was with him.  In my literary mind, it makes sense to me that I’ll be at the very beginning of my own fatherhood at that point.

He was a great father. I miss him.

I miss him too. I passed that point in my life last year, that was a hard birthday to celebrate. We were lucky to have such an amazing father, such a great example for us now that we’re parents (or will be soon). He was incredibly patient, one way I wish I were more like him. I think “what would Dad do” all the time when tough situations come about with Adelyn. So although he is gone, he is still there for me and he will be there for you too.
